MADISON, Wis. -

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin and the city’s public works department will discuss the city’s response to last week’s blizzard that dumped up to 19 inches of snow in the city.

A meeting with the media is scheduled for Wednesday at 11 a.m.

Soglin said more than 175 pieces of public and private equipment were used to clear city streets during the storm. He said the city got to many residential streets first because they didn’t want the snow to accumulate there.

The storm shut down Madison schools and Madison Metro bus service for two days.

Madison firefighters responded to at least 37 reports of downed power lines.

Thousands of homes were without power at some point during the storm and the cold, windy weather that followed it.
